Johnny Camacho Retrospective

Open Reception Saturday May18th from 7-10pm


Johnny Camacho, born in 1973 in New York City, saw art all around him. Graffiti was at its height and he loved the stories and struggles they shared. Raised in the Bronx, going to museums became his escape in his early teen years. Johnny would take what he viewed in the museums, go home and began teaching himself to paint. Pulling from his rich Latin culture, the ever present graffiti and his life experiences he found his voice in his work as an abstract expressionist. Never being in a hurry, one painting is appropriately entitled, Seven Years as it took that long for completion. His rich vibrant colors and hidden figures compel each person to see themselves in his work as well as the city all around. Painting from the gut Johnny Camacho wants his story to heal, awaken and restore each individual that looks at his painting.

Bric : Open Call The Truth

Open Reception 11/15/17 7pm-9pm

JOIN US FOR THE OPENING RECEPTION!
EXHIBTION ON VIEW THROUGH DECAMBER 17.

We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies.

~ Pablo Picasso

We live in an era when truth is under assault. In a time of alternative truths and "truthiness," we ask that you show us your truth. What is real and true for you?

BRIC's open call exhibitions—presented every other year in the Gallery of BRIC House—feature the work of some 125 artists and are open to all members of the BRIC Contemporary Artist Registry. BRIC’s Registry is comprised of artists who were born, live, or work in Brooklyn.
